The Laws and Regulations Surrounding PPE
November 19, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Employers have a general duty to furnish workplaces free from recognized hazards. Part of that obligation is providing employees with personal protective equipment (PPE). This leads to a series of questions, such as: What types of PPE are employers required to provide? How are they to determine what PPE is required at a particular worksite? Do they even have to provide PPE?
This webinar will address the legal requirements for employers related to PPE, including:
- The Hierarchy of Controls;
- Types of PPE;
- Conducting a hazard and PPE assessment for each workplace;
- Training requirements for using PPE;
- Requirements for providing PPE to employees; and
- Other aspects of the OSHA PPE standard.
